If you’ve ever been to Disney World, then you know that ride preshows are essential to the story.
The preshows set up the events for the ride and often contain some quote-worthy scripts and one-liners. Many of them have massive fanbases filled with people who can quote them from beginning to end. And recently, a popular pre-show character finally made his way to Disney World!
David Danipour is the actor behind the famous preshow for Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. He plays the part of Dr. Stevens, better known as the “uhh, fly” guy.
And according to his Twitter (@ADownpour), he made his very first trip to Orlando this week and got the chance to FINALLY test out the iconic ride — after more than four years of it being open to the public. He documented the visit on social media, and the other guests in the room didn’t even notice he was there!
Went to Orlando for the very first time last week and was able to experience (stealthily) Avatar Flight of Passage for the very first time as well. Incredible ride – preshow is uh… fine 😉 Thanks @lol4MarkDaniel. #flightofpassage #waltdisneyworld #DisneyWorld #disney pic.twitter.com/QviKv8Gkno
